Deepak Chahar was born to Lokendrasingh Chahar and Pushpa Chahar on August 7, 1992. Lokendrasingh retired from the Indian Air Force recently. He was very proud of his son when he picked up figures of 6/7 in a T20I against Bangladesh.

In an interview, Lokendrasingh stated that Deepak had probably bowled at least 1 lakh deliveries in the net before that performance came along.

Lokendrasingh has played a vital role in Deepak’s success. In one of his interviews, he revealed that he looked at Dale Steyn and Malcolm Marshall’s actions and thought such a bowler could be very handy for India. Hence, he asked Deepak to focus more on swinging the ball at a good pace. He would face 500 deliveries every day from Deepak - 250 inswingers and 250 outswingers.

Deepak Chahar has one elder sister named Malti. She is a popular model and actress. Malti has more than 450,000 followers on Instagram. Many fans would know Malti is one year older than Deepak. Her first Bollywood movie was Genius, which was released in 2018.

She completed her B Tech graduation from IET Lucknow in 2013. Malti went viral on social media when the cameraman focussed on her during CSK’s IPL 2018 matches. Since two of her brothers play cricket at the top level, Malti often attends the matches live at the stadium.

Malti’s Instagram account features photos of herself with some famous cricketers like MS Dhoni and Dwayne Bravo. Malti Chahar has regularly posted the achievements of Deepak and Rahul on her Instagram, showing how proud she is of her brothers. However, Malti would be finding it difficult to support one team when Deepak’s CSK battles Rahul’s MI in the IPL.
